1 two days ago and 3 today (in less of 30 minutes!!!!)
Proxies from different providers, different locations, different SM2 installation, and different VPS.
I think it's my personal record!

Hi

Are you getting any indication from Pinterest why the accounts are being banned?  Also did you get any emails previously from Pinterest regarding these accounts?

A couple of questions:

1. How fast are you pinning and following?

2. Are you targeting the keywords of the pins to the pages that you're sending people to? The less targeted the pins compared to the pages you send them to, the more likely people are to report them as spam and your account to be flagged.

3. Are you sending people to a high quality informational site that doesn't try to pitch or sell anything to them (ads are fine, but no sales pitch in the content)? Pinterest will ban accounts quick if you send people to a sales pitch page or affiliate review page.

4. What market are you targeting? Some markets are more prone to spam and thus more likely to get your accounts suspended.

Hi

Sounds very frustrating.  I have been lucky as I have only had a couple of accounts suspended and none since I stopped pinning 24/7 (2 months now and no suspensions).

If you are running on a VPS I think you should raise a support ticket and provide VPS logins to Jon's team and see if they can see anything that could be causing this.

Good Luck

Robert

Hi Jon,

thanks for reply

1. How fast are you pinning and following?

100 / 250


2. Are you targeting the keywords of the pins to the pages that you're sending people to?

I think so.
For example: 5 keywords about yoga landing to a money site about yoga, 5 keywords about remodeling landing to a money site about remodeling, and so on



3. Are you sending people to a high quality informational site that doesn't try to pitch or sell anything to them (ads are fine, but no sales pitch in the content)? Pinterest will ban accounts quick if you send people to a sales pitch page or affiliate review page

IMHO absolutely yes
Landing sites are informational money sites with PA/DA and dozens of informational article; no affiliates, only ADsense (1 ad on the sidebar + 2 within each article); no ecommerce, no others sales at all



4. What market are you targeting?

yoga
fitness
remodeling
travel
gardening

Just a last advice: could it depend on sm2 configuration settings?
(please see mines attached)

Many thanks in advance.

P.S.: btw no worries at all; I'LL set 10 new redirect EVERY one banned account............... let's see who gets tired first......  ;D

It certainly sounds like something you're doing is tying the accounts together so Pinterest is suspending them. I can't say what that is, because it sounds like your settings are correct in SM2. It could have to do with the way you're creating the accounts or configuring them in the browser before you put them in SM2.

Hey Jon,
just getting crazy trying to figure out what that is....

Hi

Sorry I didnt mean there was something wrong with your VPS, just meant if you were running on a VPS you could share the login details with Jon and his team so they could check your setup.

That's a lot of banning in short time.
Is your Proxy IP dedicated IP?
Are those good IP?

You can check them at...
ipvoid dot com

Yeap, I'm almost near at the end of the game

Yes

I don't know

IMHO it's a merely spam check, not quality check

Service that report / check IPs for email spam have no value when it comes to Pinterest. Pinterest has its own blacklist for IPs. If the proxy is considered "bad" the account is going to be immediately suspended the first time you pin to it (if Pinterest lets you create an account with the IP at all). So it's unlikely that the problem is that the IP has been flagged.

Now, if the IPs are too geographically similar (e.g. 1.2.3.4 and 1.2.3.5 and 1.2.3.6 etc) and the accounts were created close together or are too similar to each other (same board names, same topics, pinning using the same keywords etc) then Pinterest might tie those accounts together and suspend them all.

Are your accounts in the "make money" topic area? Apparently Pinterest doesn't like that.
